Queer love and boybands with Adib Khorram ('Kiss & Tell')

Show Notes

In Adib Khorram’s latest novel, it’s tough being a boy band star.


Author Adib Khorram explores the complexities of being queer in the public eye in his latest YA book, Kiss & Tell. Hunter is a role model for queer teens — a boy band star currently touring North America. But with that stardom comes a lot to juggle, especially when his love life is under the microscope of public pressure.

Adib joins Chelsea Regan to discuss writing his novel and all things boy bands, including the eternal question: NSYNC or Backstreet Boys?
